Grover is a counselor at Camp Wannagohoma, but his frequent lack of nature knowledge results in his campers correcting him, leading one to wonder whether he has ever been to camp himself.
Although Camp Wannagohoma is not mentioned, Grover assumes an almost identical role in Sing-Along Earth Songs; he serves as a guardian to a group of children to whom he intends to instruct on things found in nature. Every object he points out to define is something obviously ridiculous, to which the kids always point out in unison, "No, it's not..." and then correct him. The camp counselor Grover format was used again in the "E-Mail" section of "Elmo's World: Frogs" and Episode 4934.

|Grover teaches the campers about trees. He keeps getting the names of the parts of a tree wrong (such as calling the trunk a "stem" and the bark a "skin"), so the campers keep correcting him. But then they notice a bear in the tree and flee, not knowing the bear wants to be a camper as well.
|Grover tries to show the campers what is alive in the forest, but they keep correcting him.|
|Grover tries to teach his campers (including Roosevelt Franklin) about what an island is, but he gets his vocabulary mixed up. He also fails to notice when the campers board the motorboat for lunch, leaving him stranded.
